the class war issue on taxes, which romney was not able to rebutt or make the argument for. look, let's be honest about this. romney was a man who spoke conservatism as a second language. you remember in one of the primary debates he wanted to show up as conservative as he was and he ran a severely conservative administration as governor of massachusetts. severe is a word you associate with head wounds and tropical storms. [laughter] >> not with the government. he had trouble making the case. we have a strong bench, half of whom is here at your conference, young governors, ryan, we have rubio in congress, a whole slew of gun governors, a generation who is adept, you could say marinated in conservative philosophy. thinking very deeply about a new kind of conservatism but they for their own reasons, some personal, some they were simply too new and young and raw, weren't quite ready to not run. we had a weak field in the primaries, extremely weak, of whom romney was obviously the best and only possible presidential candidate. you he was -- but he was weaker than the ones sitting on the b

the taxes that support government expenditures. they paid premiums through their employers for health coverage. they forgo wage increases that could be much higher if health costs were not growing as fast. they believe are the beneficiaries of the whole two trillion dollars in the end. we are not talking about the blood in the streets. people fighting over dwindling -- over a dwindling pie. i would posit that only in health care what the growth from two 0.9 trillion dollars in 2013 to 5.1 trillion dollars in 2023 would be referred to as a shrinking pie. there will be plenty of resources flowing into the health-care system, just not quite as much as would be flowing if nothing was done. we are talking now to give you some sense of the magnitude of this. we are talking about the .rojected health policy twee if you say two trillion dollars in that growth, you would be reducing health spending to only 40 trillion dollars over the next 10 years. you would be cutting the growth in health spending from an estimated 90% under current policy to only 75% over the next two -- over the next 10 ye
to undergo a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered t
tax comments. >> i have made some dumb, dumb mistakes and obviously talking about this stuff is one of them. my apology is for talking about it publicly. i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change. >> mickelson hinted earlier this week he may leave california or the united states because of how much he's paying in taxes. california has a new tax rate of 13.3 percent. that is your 5@5:00. >> tiger woods moved out of california fort same reason. >> four months after the terrorist atrack hillary clinton finally testifying about what she knew. there was no shortage in fireworks yesterday in what was a heated and emotional day on capitol hill. >> i am glad you are accepting responsibility. i think ultimately with your leaving you you accept culpability of the worst tragedy since 9-11. had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi or bam ambassador stevens i would have relieved you have your post. >> peter doocy is live from washington with more. >> peter do we have you there? >> yeah, i am he
a probationary status, they would have to register with the federal government, pay a fine and back taxes and pass a background check to make sure they don't have a criminal background, violent history. to gain permanent residency, individuals would have to pay more fine, demonstrate a work history and current employment and they'd have to go behind the back of the line behind every lawful green card applicant. it provide for immigrant who is came to the u.s. as children and those who are agricultural workers. they do not have to go back to their home country. the most important i kquestion be answered, do knows who are dead set against amnesty believes this is amnesty under another name. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. >> senator menendez said after a handful of meeting the senators agreed a pathway to citizenship must be part of any comprehensive plan. >> having a pathway to earned legalization is an essential element and i
they can't block things and president can get his larger initiatives through, so he can have more tax increases, that he can do more stimulus spending, that he can do gun control, a larger amnesty program for illegal immigrants, gay marriage, who knows? but he has a big bold agenda that he talked about, including global warming that couldn't get through. couldn't get 60 votes in the senate and remember this, this is the most important part of all of it. if the president can't pass the controversial legislation through his own fellow democrats in the senate and moderates and those in states that are red, facing reelection, he can't ever pressure the house, because if he can't move it it out of the sna you can't pressure the house, that's what this comes down to is being able to break the back of the republican majority in the house. >> megyn: we shall see. the republican are said to be least talking with harry reid could be a bipartisan agreement to curtail the filibuster, but the republicans say the only way they could do that is if they significantly improve their ability to put amen

[ male announcer ] it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pres

ran a great campaign. he created issues out of nothing, like the class war issue on taxes, which romney was not able to make the argument for. let's be honest about this. romney was a man who spoke conservatism as a second language. remember, and one of the primary debates, he wanted to show how conservative he was and he said that he ran a severely conservative administration as governor of massachusetts. severe is a word that you associate with a tropical storm, not the government.

,000 in legal fees for her defense attorney jose baez. in addition to over $200,000 in back tax, fees and penalties. according to the courts the aim of seeking chapter 7 bankruptcy protection is to be discharged of ex-ing debts essentially to get a fresh financial start, a fresh start. which is something casey anthony is certainly no stranger to. and cbs affiliate kpho reports that anthony spoke with one of their anchors and called the filing "the next step towards closure." >>> popular snacks including devil dogs, ring dings and yodels will soon or could soon be back on store shelves. the maker of little debbie snack cakes is reportedly the leading bidder to buy those from hostess for up to $30 million. hostess still hasn't announced a lead bid for its most iconic treat, the twinkie, so the twinkie's fate is still up in the air. i'm sure that will be settled. >>> finally, an unexpected visitor greeted a delay or created a delay at a college basketball saturday. it was a bat, a bat 234r50iing around the bradley center, there you see it in milwaukee. it sent players and coaches scrambl
hopefully with full understanding of how difficult the tax is. and finally, last couple of days we have been ability to event what was called a nuclear option in the united states senate. a lot of people don't appreciate how important it was for us to get that done. chuck schumer and i and others and dick durbin were involved a bistart san effort to avert that. we were able to do that with the co-leaders. there is a desire for bipartisanship here in this body. i think we can show the country and the world that we are capable of tackling this issue, a looming and terrible issue that has to be resolved in a bipartisan basis and i believe the majority of the american people support such an effort and i want to thank my colleagues again and the ever congenial senator schumer. >> now we'll have the even more congenial senator durbin. >> i want to thank my colleagues. john mccain, thanks. we have been down this road before but i feel very good about our chances this time. chuck, thank you for your leadership on this. i'm sure that marco and bob and lindsey and i understand that you've been the for

[ laughter ] >> john: so every week, the pole gets a ride. he's there. we'll be playing some clips from him. today, we have to have a bit of a funeral for sarah palin on fox news. >> i don't know. i would love to think that we've seen the last of her but i don't think so. >> john: i don't think so either. >> i don't think so. >> we have speculation coming out she may pop up on another network. >> john: her people are calling mr. zucker all weekend. >> she did make a comment on her interview with breitbart where she said we shouldn't just be preaching to the choir. conservatives need to reach out. which is funny because she did it on breitbart. she's setting herself up to reach out to a larg
with a green card as long as they paid back taxes and paid penalties and get in line for citizenship and approval. they also, however, want stronger border security and tracking of legal immigrants and whether or not they overstayed their welcome. they want to strengthen the employment verification system out there for immigrants, and those getting advanced degrees, ph.d. and masters in the math and the sciences. all of this is good politics, take a listen. >> look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the his pappic vote we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we got to understand that. >> in the last election, president obama got 71% of the hispanic vote, and mitt romney got 27%. dennis, cheryl? cheryl: immigration a big topic, obviously, and they voted on that. peter barnes, thank you very much. >> you bet. cheryl: gun stocks trading, the sector, we have been watching it, the two biggest names we follow, mar -- marginally higher. the president and vice president meeting with chiefs from major cities like aurora, colorado, oak cre
has said the senate is working on a budget but the republicans won't like it because it includes tax increases. they will talk about a short term solution. it is a change from before. beyond that, it remains to be seen what common ground, if any we can find between the two sides. house speaker boehner wants to balance the budge net ten years but doing that would take massive spending cuts that democrats won't go for. we're back after the break. coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, it's "the stephanie miller show." ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ i'm walkin' on sunshine ♪ ♪ and it's time to feel good ♪ ♪ hey, all right now ♪ ♪ and it's time to feel good ♪ >> hal: welcome to "the ste

tax dollars, billions of them. and now all of a sudden some are suggesting we should change the rules when we are hit by the first major disaster to hit the new york city region in a very long time. that's not fair. that's not right. and we have argued against it, and i hope my colleagues will defeat the lee amendment. and i also say to my colleagues that this is not just dollars and cents. these are people who care, are waiting, homeowners waiting to rebuild their homes. they haven't moved back in. small business owners who are hanging on by a thread after building a business for 25 years. we know when the hand of god strikes, it's overwhelming for them. take rita from emerald magic lawn care. her company helps local families, schools and businesses with lawn care in the spring and summer and around the holidays they help with decorations and lights. but emerald magic's business was interrupted for many weeks. the client base dried up. rita's business will be in huge trouble. it may not survive if she doesn't get a lifeline and get one now. so this is very important. week after week,
at this saying tax receipts could cover only the absolute essentials here so we have to cut into other things. i'm not -- i think it is a sequester that really does bring people out there and show their hand. >> bill: now the deal -- the bill that the house passed yesterday, the republican bill, am i understanding so it says we'll raise the debt ceiling through mid may but senate has to pass a budget, right and if they don't pass a budget, then we won't get paid as members of congress. >> right. >> bill: is that a real threat? i saw something somewhere where congress gets paid no matter what. >> here's a funny thing. obviously it is a gimmick. it is not as if people are really going to go unpaid for a long period of time. there is a constitutional concern. the 27th amendment says you can't pass a law that pays some members of congress more or less than others. the pay would go into escrow. essentially, we'll hold back. >> bill: i got it. >> you get paid at the back end. >> bill: so you put it in a cookie jar or something like that when the time is right -- >> when your time-out is over, you get
is in washington, d.c. is your way or the highway. i mean the republicans won't touch taxes and the democrats -- >> but that is to the true. we just touched taxes. the sequestration is touching the fence. at some point it's great rhetoric, but it's not reality. >> also discretionary spending is at its lowest since 1953 and under this president we have addressed spending cuts. >> no, we have touched -- >> let's talk about -- >> we've touched discretionary because mandatory, medicare, medicaid, veterans' benefits are where the explosion is. >> aging population. >> the administration, the president particularly has gone to the table for a grand bargain several times and seems that much of the republican caucus in the house has not accepted some of the sacred cows that the administration has put on the table. the president talks about this in the interview in detail. >> i come back to the rule of life. a dollar spent on "a," cannot be spent on "b." you wonder why discretionary spending is so low, because nondiscretionary spending is crowding out the marine corps, scientific -- we'll be in an assi
to remake our government, revamp our tax code, reform our schools and empower our citizens with the skills they need to work harder, learn more, reach higher. but while the means will change, our purpose endures. a nation that rewards the effort and determination of every single american. that is what this moment requires. that is what will give real meaning to our creed. we, the people, still believe that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. [ cheers ] for we remember the lessons of our past when twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we rec noise that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sud
majority support on a cloture vote: the dream act, bring jobs home act, small business jobs and tax relief act, paying fair share act of 2012, repeal big oil tax subsidies act, teachers and first responders back-to-work act, american jobs act of 2011, public safety employer-employee cooperation act, paycheck fairness act, creating american jobs and ending offshoring act. now, again -- again, it's not that the bill was filibustered. the right to even debate these bills and vote on them was filibustered. one thing, he go on the bill and they filibuster. no, we couldn't even debate it. even though a majority of senators voted for cloture. not 60 but a majority. so the majority thwarted from even bringing these up and debating them and even letting people offer amendments. now, it used to come that if a senator opposed a bill, he or she would engage in a spirited debate, try to change people's minds, attempt to persuade the public, offer amendments, vote "no," and then try to hold members who voted "yes" accountable at the ballot box. isn't that what it's about? in contrast, today, to quote fo
if you're buying a big ticket item. >> you're paying 8 or 9% in sales tax and now this. in some states, this is illegal. >> yeah. okay. here are the lucky people in california, colorado, connecticut, florida, kansas, maine, massachusetts, new york, oklahoma and texas. listen, this is a big deal and i think people are going to struggle with this thing and they're not going to be happy about it and consider, these fees were really already built into the price of stuff, so you're really paying it twice. what they should do is give us a discount in cash. >> shepard: they should. >> but they're not going to do that. no. >> shepard: thank you. a real shock shock today. shares of apple fell far from the tree and rotted in the orchard. the tech giant price per share off 12% today alone. off 36% from the high. quarterly earnings came out today, they were up but not as much as analysts expected. slowing growth, it shows. after five blockbuster years. senator john kerry did ad libbing and fought back some tears during his confirmation hearing. in his opening statement, he added a mention of his t
, their kids in school, they've got jobs they are paying taxes. right? they are members of the community. of course, they ought to be able to basically make it official. i don't think it should be that tough. will republicans go along is the big question? not all of them. >> this is "the bill press show." going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. [ music ] >> chatting with you live at country.com/bill press. this is "the bill press show" live on your radio and current tv. >> bill: thirty-three minutes after the hour. we are talking about the outlinesout of a comprehensive immigration bill, one bill. >> that's important that eight senators, four democrats
check. make certain that they pay any fines that we establish. pay their taxes, which is a critical part of this whole comprehensive approach. give them a chance to earn their way into citizenship, learning english and the basics about america's history. and basically, four, making sure that the amount of illegal immigrants that are -- the amount of legal immigration allowed in the united states is based on the state of our economy. we are going to enshrine in here the principle that when it comes to job openings, americans get the first grab at it. americans get first opportunity. and that's the way it should be. we're going to make certain beyond that that there are opportunities for others. and there are a variety of different ways we approach it. let me close by just addressing one issue near and dear that i was -- happy to have both chuck and john refer to. it has been 12 years, 12 years since i introduced the dream act. i never gave up because when you meet these young people, you can't give up. but there were some disappointing times and some sad times. and a lot of tears shed whe
priorities are, how we're going to use our tax revenue. and we can do this in a smart way. >> one thing that is going on currently as we speak, the confirmation hearings for john kerry to take over for secretary clinton, and yesterday, it was certainly a big day on the hill for secretary clinton about the benghazi situation. i want to play for everybody what you had to say as well as senator barbara boxer told the secretary of state. >> as a new member of congress, i think i speak for all the freshman that we're not going to get much time to serve with you, but we hope in a few years we'll get that chance to serve again. >> i want to thank you because this is maybe the last time you'll come before us as secretary here. i want to thank you for your advocacy on behalf of women around the globe. you will be sorely missed, but i, for one, hope not for too long. >> those were just a small sampling of what boat sides had to say, democrats from the house and senate side of things to the secretary. now i want to say what radio personality rush limbaugh had to say about these interactions. >> i
is that it is not always going to be cheap. once people start paying highway taxes like you do for gasoline, that is suddenly going to get more expensive. already you cannot recover your cost of those conversions. certainly do not need all us to pay for those conversions. the problem will be solved in the marketplace, particularly with what is available to us as a resource base today. and that is our own production. one other factor a lot of people miss, besides a wealth creation and all of those things, a big one is that the psychological benefit of us not being under the thumb of opec any longer. the american public likes to be independent. we like to be free. suddenly we can be free from what we have been under for 50 years. the psychological impact of that is huge. >> i have always thought the the impact of oil on american middle east policies was understated. there is an episode where he is looking at the equipment and the people and investment and he says, it costs a lot of money to steal oil.

spending and i don't think we can continue to tax the american economy. we need economic growth but it's about prioritizing spending. i have conservative beliefs foreign aid can be useful, but we have to get our spending out of control. we utilize the position to encourage the president to work with us in good faith to solve the debt and deficit issue >> i spent six months i guess it was or five months as a member of the super committee. and i put an enormous amount of energy and hope that we would be able to get the bigger bargain. i'm not here to go through the details of why we didn't, that there was a very hard line monitor negotiating position that prevented us from being able to come to an agreement which incidentally we just came to. but we can to this with far less on the table and far less accomplished than we would have if we had come to that agreement six months ago or a year ago. my hope is yes, i certainly will weigh in on that and the degree that it does not impact on - devotee to do my job and the ability of the state department to be able to do its job. we cannot reduce
's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that is going to work. jon: let's get back to karl rove. karl, what about his thoughts on a president bent on conquest? >> i think it is accurate. i wrote about this in my "wall street journal" column last week. i thought it was interesting in the president's inaugural address he went out of his way to take a political slap at his defeated opponent in the election, mitt romney and then he went on to basically call republicans name-calling absolutist who are clowns. in order to make certain we got the point, his communication director had gone on television the day before we have neither a political system or a political opposition w
